Led by Enterprise Community Partners, Keep Safe is a resource to enable people to rebuild stronger so that, when tens of billions of dollars of Federal aid arrives in Puerto Rico, the money can be used to protect residents from future harm. The guide provides practical and affordable ideas for rebuilding homes.

In 2017, immediately following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, a diverse team of experts assembled and, through a process of dialogue and consensus, produced this technical and comprehensive guide. While the guide is relevant and specific to Puerto Rico, it was translated in Spanish and English, and will benefit the Virgin Island and other Caribbean Nations.


This effort was led by Enterprise Community partners with a series of partners. Please see the guidebook for a full list of content developers and advisors.
